Dear Shri Ravishankar ji,
Many thanks for posting the url of Kannadaaudio.com and since then on a couple of occasions I have accessed the site and enjoyed listening the Shivananda Lahiri by Dr M Balamurali Krishna.  A well rendered version.  Thanks once again to you and the Advaita for carrying your msg.

> This work is by bhagavan Sri Sankara and considered so by the tradition.
> bhagavaan Sri ramaNa Maharishi made a selection of 10 verses out this 100.

> mayyeva vaasam kuru ...) in the context of animal sacrifice.
> I believe that Sri Balamuralikrishna's majestic rendering is an invaluable

> Sanskrit commentary on this work by an anonymous author - I have this with
> me. May be one day I will scan it and make it available online.
